The Washington Business Journal’s Top Shelf Blog takes a look at the renewal going on in the Braddock Road neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia and focuses in on three new joints in the neighborhood, Bastille, Lost Dog Cafe, and Sugar Shack Donuts.
An independent study of 4,800 random households within a 400-mile radius (excluding Alexandria itself) also uncovered the motivating factors, favorite activities, and spending habits of visitors. The findings were released recently as part two of a study that demonstrated the return-on-investment and effectiveness of Alexandria’s tourism advertising.

I’m told from sources in the know that The Majestic has now re-opened under new management. I went to the joint last night to confirm this news.
The Majestic is now headed by Alexandria Restaurant Partners LLC (ARP), the same group now running Virtue Feed & Grain located in the Alexandria waterfront area. I’m told from sources that ARP, who co-owned The Majestic with the Armstrong’s, wanted a fresh start for the joint and moved to cut ties with them.
The Majestic has a new chef, Jorge Pimentel, who’s well known in D.C. food circles and I’m told the aim with the menu is to focus on comfort food and to make The Majestic THE neighborhood spot in Alexandria.
